About the UMKC Student Loan Department
The Student Loan Department staff at UMKC handle the promissory notes, reporting and repayment of Federal Perkins Student Loans, Health Professions Loans and University Long-Term Loans awarded UMKC students, as well as Short-Term University Loans issued prior to June 1, 2003.
We answer inquiries concerning deferment, forbearance, postponement, cancellation and consolidation options for the above referenced loans. When a student who has been awarded these graduates or drops below half-time status, we conduct exit interviews with the student to review their rights and responsibilities regarding loan repayment. Our goal is to provide this information, as well as solutions to problems, in an accurate, responsive and courteous manner within the bounds of regulatory compliance and University guidelines and procedures.
